1,777 yards rushing. 301 yards and 6 touchdowns versus Vicksburg High School in the Class 5A playoffs. Not bad for a running back who played high school football for the first time his junior season. Brandon Jackson is his name and he plays for Horn Lake High School in Horn Lake, Mississippi.
The 6-1, 205-pounder, who I first met on November 14th, 2002, told me that he has maxed out at 400 pounds on the bench press and squatted 605 pounds. Brandon also runs a 4.43 forty. One of his coaches told me that he has run a 10.7 second 100 meters. He also can two-hand dunk a basketball.
This past season, he was selected to the MAC All-State 5A first-team and the first-team All-Region team.
You will be hearing more and more about this youngster as the recruiting season heats up.
